#Benghazi vs. Benghazi vs. Paul Rosenberg vs. Reality
Caution, this entire post is full of liberal projection, but the point that really sticks with me is the insistence by Paul Rosenberg that Benghazi is in no way exceptional and that Bush and Reagan both lost more people and suffered more embassy attacks. All the while, he never bothers to mention the very large difference between the attacks under Reagan and Bush… Wait, let | Read More »

Mark Udall’s Very Bad Week: Colorado Senate Moved to Toss Up
This week has had a lot of bad news for the campaign of incumbent Colorado Senator, Democrat, strong Obamacare proponent, environmental enthusiast, Mark Udall. Whether it was news about his PAC giving his campaign money, a CNN analyst predicting his loss, new polling showing the race essentially tied and multiple vulnerabilities for Udall, or the change in the race ranking to toss-up, none of it was good news for the embattled Outward Bound Senator.

UPDATED: Colorado Democrats Take Extreme Position on Abortion Rights
